Inflammatory demyelinating disease affecting the central nervous system(CNS). Early treatment is the key to neurological recovery. We reportthe case of a 4-year-old girl who developed cerebellar ataxia one week after a varicella rash. Cerebral MRI revealed bilateral lesions of the white matter in favor of ADEM. Corticosteroid boluses associated with antiviral treatment were administered and resulted in a remarkable clinical improvement. Long-term follow-up is essential for assessing prognosis.
